What is Sermorelin Acetate?
Sermorelin Acetate, commonly known as just “Sermorelin” is a hormone which causes the human body to release HGH (human growth hormone). HGH is a hormone created by the pituitary gland. It is the hormone that causes rapid growth during childhood, sometimes resulting in over-night growth spurts. HGH production peaks at about the age of 20 and begins to decline at about the age of 30.
What does Sermorelin Acetate do?
Sermorelin Acetate causes a natural (endogenous) release of HGH. It is not to be confused with artificial or synthesized (exogenous). This is the key factor in identifying Sermorelin Acetate. This factor alone makes Sermorelin Acetate very effective and much safer than HGH injections.
What benefits are there in using Sermorelin Acetate?
Sermorelin Acetate is commonly referred to as an anti-aging supplement. It helps the body repair itself quicker and may in effect reverse aging by repairing weakened cells and body systems. Besides the effects of using the Sermorelin Acetate, a patient can rest assured that stimulating an endogenous production of HGH is much safer than administration of exogenous sources of HGH. The safety in this comes from the body’s own ability to produce and limit the production of HGH.
There are multiple studies out that support the results that patients of Sermorelin Acetate have reported.
Results found among clinical studies and self-reported results from patients include:
- Improved Sleep
- Improved sexual stamina, reported improvroved sensitivity and enlargement of sexual organs
- Helps the body repair and replace damaged or old cells more rapidly
- Increases energy, strength, and stamina
- Increases lean muscle tissue while decreasing body fat
- Increases strength in the immune system
- Increased bone mineral density
- Protects against free radicals, or oxidation
- Quicker recovery time after surgery or other wounds
- Better workouts, faster recovery
What doesn’t Sermorelin Acetate do?
The first thing a potential patient of Sermorelin Acetate must do is plan to make a long term commitment. The very minimum therapy to see any distinguishable results is 6 months. To really get the maximum benefit, 1 year is recommended.
Sermorelin Acetate does not produce immediate results and turn the patient into a super-hero. Sermorelin will not turn a person with a normal physique into a bodybuilder just by merit of taking the supplement. Results vary depending on the current physiological state of the patient, age, and fitness history.
With all of this being said, results that are tangible are nearly guaranteed. A patient should consider Sermorelin Acetate as a tool to help them achieve their fitness goals. Applying a proper diet and fitness program to the time of therapy will maximize the results, acting as a catalyst to push the pituitary gland to release the maximum amount of HGH.
Who needs Sermorelin?
As humans age, HGH begins to decrease from the age of 30 by 14% per decade. By age 40, the average human will have only 40% of their natural HGH compared to the age of 20. For this reason, it is contraindicated that anyone under the age of 30 be prescribed the Sermorelin Acetate therapy. Patients over the age of 30 must be evaluated by a physician to determine if 1. The therapy is applicable 2. The recommended dosage and length of therapy.
People who have already established and maintained a good physique from their youth can benefit from Sermorelin Acetate therapy. They can support that firmer physique and extend the length of time they are able to maintain a youthful appearance.
People that have struggled with their physique can utilize Sermorelin Acetate as a booster to push their body to adapt to new fitness and diet strategies.
Do the effects wear off and reverse once therapy is stopped?
The short answer is NO! Sermorelin Acetate therapy can have continuing benefits because of the changes they stimulated in the body. Also, HGH production that was re-invigorated will actually continue at a higher level for possibly years to come. This effect is what has earned the therapy the term “anti-aging”.
What side effects are there?
Unlike exogenous HGH, Sermorelin Acetate has very few side effects and it is unlikely if not practically impossible to overdose.
The most common side effect is a small amount of irritation at the injection site. This is not unlike minor irritation from injection of any substance via a subcutaneous injection. The same irritation can be experienced from injecting only bacteriostatic water, the same water used to re-constitute injectable pharmaceuticals.
The most severe and rare side effect known is irritation or itching in the throat or airways, and/or shortness of breath. This should be reported immediately to a physician, or be treated at an emergency or urgent care facility. Other side effects that are extremely rare in nature but should be reported to a physician if experienced are dizziness, vomiting, headache, and hyperactivity.
Where can I get a prescription for Sermorelin Acetate?
Sermorelin Acetate therapy can be prescribed from physicians who specialize in bio-identical hormone therapy. The convenience of finding a physician that prescribes the therapy is a factor that deters many would be patients. Another consideration is the cost of seeing and in-clinic provider. Oftentimes the cost of in-clinic therapy can far out cost that which can be obtained through tele-medicine.
Fortitude Vitamins has taken the guess work out of locating a tele-medicine prescriber for the Sermorelin Acetate therapy. With many options available the choices can be overwhelming and downright risky. Fortitude Vitamins has pre-screened a small group of providers that can prescribe the Sermorelin Acetate therapy.
